Abstract

A total of 26 different pad and pant systems for the incontinent were subjected to comprehensive clinical trials with the help of over 100 test subjects. In addition, the coverstocks and fluff pulp absorbents from these pads were characterised using standard laboratory tests. This paper examines the relationships between the clinical performance of the pads, their design features, and the properties of their constituent materials. Many commonly used design features and commonly measured materials properties proved of little clinical significance. However, some simple relationships of importance for pad designers emerged.
